Publisher Description

Is there credible proof that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? In The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and New York Times bestselling author, retraces his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith and builds a captivating case for Christ's divinity.

In this revised and updated edition of The Case for Christ, Strobel cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools such as Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis, asking hard-hitting questions--and taking a deeper look at the evidence from the fields of science, philosophy, and history.  

In his comprehensive investigation, Strobel doesn't shy away from the challenging questions, including:

  • How reliable is the New Testament?
  • Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible?
  • Is Jesus who he said he was?
  • Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?
  • What does all of the evidence point to--and what does it mean today?

Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for the Christian Book of the Year Award, The Case for Christ has been adapted into a major motion picture and has now sold over five million copies worldwide.

This edition includes scores of revisions and additions, including updated material on archaeological and manuscript discoveries, fresh recommendations for further study, and an interview with the author that tells dramatic stories about the book's impact, provides behind-the-scenes information, and responds to critiques of the book by skeptics.

Strobel's thorough examination reads like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it's not fiction: it's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure. Discover The Case for Christ today.

    " This book is what answered all my Christianity questions that no one else could seem to answer (at least not in a way that satisified me!). This book was LIFE CHANGING for me! "

    " An awesome book, by a former atheist who today is a leading expert in the field of apologetics. A must read for any Christian desiring to solidify their faith and further prepare themselves in defense of the Gospel. An absolute read for anyone who still doubts that Jesus Christ is who He says he was! "

    " Decent presentation of the evidence for Christ being who He said He was, showing Christianity's historical and logical and prophetic foundations. However, it presented itself as an objective journalistic account, which it most definitely was not (Strobel was already a Christian when he wrote it, for starters). The interviews felt set up and canned, with the questions and the answers laid out perfectly to make the point the author was going for. I don't think this would be very convincing for skeptics, or even for those searching, but it's hard for me to say, as I speak from the perspective of a lifelong believer. "

    " Offers a unique perspective to the understanding of Christianity. But the perspective is anything but neutral: the book is blatantly biased and unconvincing. Still, it's a well-written book with well-organized and well-presented arguments. "

    " that Jesus Christ undoubtedly was exactly who He said He was. And if He was who He said He was, there is no more debate. We then have to repent and believe and know that it is only because of HIS blood that we can then enter the kingdom of heaven. "
